Athlon 64 3500+ Venice Core Overclocking

@ 2005/05/13
While the hottest CPU on the planet is the Athlon 64 X2 dual core it
is not the only new CPU from AMD. The Athlon 64 has hit another
revision with the Venice core at 90nm. It adds SSE3 support, acts
better with mismatched memory, and overclocking on it looks to be
promising. Today we look at the Athlon 64 3500+ Venice core, and
compare it against the 3800+ Venice core, and the Athlon 64 X2 4800+
dual core in performance. Then we run it through the overclocking
wringer to see how far we can push it past the default 2.2GHz.
